Updated: Construction on Island Highway South & Fraser Road, Oct 28 to 31

October 28, 2014

The planned water main improvement project in South Courtenay has been temporarily suspended due to bad weather.

Work is scheduled to resume on Wednesday, October 29, and will result in periodic traffic disruptions on the Island Highway South (Highway 19A) and Fraser Road.

The project will continue until Friday, October 31, weather permitting. Commuters should expect periods of traffic disruption between 8:00 am and 3:00 pm on those days, including single-lane alternating traffic on Highway 19A and Fraser Road.

Traffic control personnel will be on hand to assist all commuters, including cyclists. Please use caution and obey traffic control personnel.

The City has notified area residents whose water service will be interrupted while crews perform this work. The water main improvements will slightly increase water pressure in the area, improve the quality of water, and upgrade the fire hydrant water supply to meet City standards.
